“Visually pleasing and wonderfully comfortable”
Reviewed 11 October 2018 for a stay in September 2018

One of the few cottages with warm lighting strong enough for reading. Its situation and its big, easy car park makes it a great centre for touring Galloway. It has all the practical things needed - heating, cooking etc - and the upper floor with landing area furnished for sitting looking out to sea is delightful.

“Where Has The Water Gone? Wow It Is Back”
Reviewed 11 October 2018 for a stay in September 2018

Great location with views over the harbour. Such a novelty for us to see the wonderful expanse of water disappear always to return.
Cottage spacious and comfortable. Received a friendly welcome on arrival from Betty and cliff who provided helpful information.
Easy walk to local pub. For more supplies easy half hour drive to Newton Stewart.
Other interesting places not too far distant.
As a coincidence was reading a novel while relaxing in the cottage - The Hanged Man by by Simon Kernick. Newton Stewart featured in the plot with special emphasis on the Sainsburys supermarket. Interesting.
Had an enjoyable week at the Harbourside Cottage.

“Gold standard”
Reviewed 19 September 2018 for a stay in September 2018

Perfect location for exploring the Mull of Galloway. The accommodation was sparkly clean when we arrived and is beautifully fitted out with a generous supply of everything needed by guests.

Certainly one of the best standards we have come across and would happily recommend to friends and definitely return in the future.

Thank you so much for your positive review - it is so reassuring for us to know that we are doing all the right things for our guests. Yourselves and your two friends were perfect guests and we hope you will return one day (although maybe not Gregg and Maggie from Australia!). Best wishes from Betty and Cliff

“Harbour House, Garlieston ”
Reviewed 10 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Comfortable and well equipped cottage in a very nice location. Ideally situated for visiting Dumfries and Galloway - with ample suggestions for visits, nearby or farther afield.

Lovely seating area upstairs, and at the rear of the cottage, extra sun chairs, parasol, and BBQ. Good supply of towels, tea towels and toilet paper, and thoughtful milk,tea and coffee welcome pack.

We would highly recommend this lovely holiday cottage.

“Lovely Cottage in peaceful setting”
Reviewed 18 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

The cottage was lovely with everything you could ever want provided,it was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The seats looking out on the harbour were a big hit. We enjoyed walking along the sea shore and up into the gardens of the house on the hill.A wonderful hideaway for a restful holiday.
